Philosophy Colloquium: Call No Man Happy Until He Is Dead
Start Date: 1/29/2013Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 1/29/2013End Time: 2:30 PM

Event Description:
The Suffolk University Philosophy Department presents an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series with David Roochnik, Boston University Philosophy Department.

Professor Roochnik will be discussing the passage in the Nicomachean Ethics where Aristotle cites this famous quote from the wise man Solon: ³Call no man happy until he is dead.² At issue: the meaning of happiness and whether it is an attainable and stable possession. The Colloquium Series invites conversation, so a short talk will proceed into discussion. We will focus on Chapter 10 of Book 1, which is attached.

Large Conference Room (10-100)
73 Tremont Street, 10th floor

Refreshments (pizza) will be served!
